The introduction of Objective Force formations, beginning with the first Unit of Action, will fundamentally change existing organizational structures, training requirements and operational constructs for the U.S. Army. At no point in modern history has the Army introduced such significant changes in both hardware and operations simultaneously. To support this change, the Army leadership must decide, early in the transformation process, on a plan for fielding and training Units of Action that leverages emerging training technologies, establishes standardization across the Army, minimizes personnel turbulence and is sustainable over an extended period. The challenges of introducing the Objective Force formations will be made more complex by near simultaneous conversion of the U.S. Army from the current individual replacement system to a unit manningunit rotation system. As we move into the complex environment of transformation, the Officer education System OES will require review to insure it produces officers capable of performing within the new organizational constructs.
